    I don’t get insurance … sorted insurance for new bike yesterday .

    for Suzuki policy which started in may it was £350 ish , thought  I’m going to get stung adding the Ducati , they mirrored the bikes so I could use no claims on both bikes ,  got £200 refund from Suzuki policy and then for both bikes on a new policy price was £440 with the £200 refund cost me £240.

     

    Yet I got screwed over transferring to the BM :?

    Funny you should say that. My least favourite was my Honda CBX750, but the FJR ran it a close second for many of the reasons you mention. 

     

    Glad its not just me then! and am I right in thinking yours was newer than mine? 

  5. What's your least favourite bike that you have owned? 

     

    For me its the 2001 FJR1300! I never really gelled with it to be honest and while it was a good bike for touring two up it was not a bike for riding on my own! 

     

    It was fast which could give you the thrill if you wanted but the aerodynamics spoilt it massively.

     

    Low speed manoeuvrability was hard work the seat was hard and only good for around 150 miles.

     

    I am not sure if its because I came from sports bikes to the FJR why I never gelled with it but it just never felt right and I could never pin point why! 

     

    So why did I buy it? Well I was doing very little mileage on sports bikes as the missus wouldn't get on them and working stupid shifts at the time meant I had limited weekends to get out! We took a mates FJR out and she liked it so I took the plunge and got one. My initial thought was its not a bike for me but I would get used to it after all its just like riding a bike :lol: I never did get used to it :? Financial reasons meant I kept it for 7 years where things got better but never great. 

     

    So over to you lot

  6. Proposal 2: Reducing the size of motorcycles that can be used for the A2 category test.

    The law sets the MTV requirement for the vehicles that can be used on a practical driving or riding test.

    For the A2 category that is currently 395cc, provided also that the power output is at least 20kW, but does not exceed 35kW. This proposal reduces the engine size to 245cc.

    This will mean that people can use motorcycles for the A2 test that they feel more comfortable riding.

     

    The decision

    After taking all these views into account the government has decided to introduce this proposal. Arrangements will be made to amend the regulations to reduce the MTV for A2 motorcycles to 245cc, with the other power requirements remaining as they are.

    This means that you can now take the A2 test on a 245cc bike

    You wanna sponsor me? 😂

     

    I was one of the fastest... In novice. Let's see if inters at Lydden hill on the 18th is different. 

     

    Wish I could afford to! 

     

    Not saying I would I just wish I could :lol: 

     

    I know some track day junkies and they say there is a massive difference between the fast group and racing so you probably have a long way to go for that yet but get out and have some fun and learn as you go :thumb:
